3 feet? Galapagos turtles are much larger...

Another article I found. This one seems to be old but it does offer a bit more info.

Knight Ridder

The government there basically banned and made it illegal to capture the turtle.

The reason I find this very intriguing is that it's pretty mysterious. I mean there was the legend and then sightings of the turtle coming up every now and then. We heard of attempts to catch it but no one has ever found it (until recently).

I supposed it's like one of those mysteries such as the Loch Ness monster or Big Foot, both of which have pretty much the same stories (sightings, pictures, etc. but no one has ever caught it).

Picture of turtle (supposed to be 6 foot long).

It looks like one of my customers that comes in and buys very unhealthy meals 3-4 times a week. It really does...strange.

Catch and release sounds good to me. Let the poor thing die out in peace.

I want to see this "GOLDEN TURTLE" with the sword mang

"A national legend tells of a giant golden turtle that bestowed upon the Vietnamese people a magic sword and victory over Chinese invaders in the 16th century. Whether that sacred turtle has materialized in the 21st century will be a matter of cultural debate among the Vietnamese"
